Does anyone have an owners manual for one of these? I would like to get a copy. If anyone has one, PM me. Supposedly it has some very good settings in it. I have downloaded manuals from Carvin (for my amp), and Marshall for a pedal, from their respective websites, but haven't found a source for Dano. If there is a source to download it from, let me know.

In my experience (I have several Dano pedals) Dano doesn't put a lot of info in the "Manuals"
Plug in here
This one to amp
Battery here....etc \:\)

But I will check around

That's what I have heard for the most part. When I bought my Danecho pedal, it actually had some good, useful setting to get started with. I have heard that the Cool Cat has some too, but don't know, as I bought mine used. Their website is about the same, here's what we make and here's a picture of it, and that's about it! The Marshall pedal that I downloaded the manual for was even a discontinued pedal and they still had the info right there, exact same thing with Carvin! I appreciate the help.

I had a cool cat. Very unique sounding chorus.

The thing is, I had a 2 battery one that sounded great. Then they changed it to a 1 battery model.

Didn't think it sounded the same. The older ones are cooler cats.

That's what I've heard. I have the 2 battery version. I bought if fairly cheap on ebay. It was a PITA finding an 18 volt wall wart, but I found a NOS one at a music store not far from here. It definitely is a unique sounding chorus. I'm looking more for a rotating speaker sound than an actual chorus, but I have found the Cool Cat to be very useful. I've got the Danecho, the Daddy O distortion and the Tuna Melt Tremelo (even tho I think that "Tuna Melt" is a stupid name! \:D ) and for the $$, these things are great sounding pedals.

I had the mini flanger model. It was actually pretty cool, and fun to throw on certain parts but it only worked for like 3 months. Then it just stopped.

I use the tremelo and the Danecho very regularly and both seem to be holding up just fine. I got the tremelo pedal used at GC for $9.99, so if it dies, no big deal. Then I will probably get one of those build it yourself ones. I've been GASSING for a couple of those Build Your Own Clone pedals. Building one myself sound pretty cool, too.

I would have scanned it, but the book is about 3 x 3" with a picture of one set up per page. It was faster to type than to scan all of those pages.
